The study was carried out in 2016 at several villages of Mungeli district. In this study, an improved two pot cook stove was designed, fabricated and tested to evaluate its performance. In this work we have fabricated a chulha (cooking stove) that is more energy efficient as compared to the chulha type used in the nearby villages. Both the chulhas were fabricated with the black soil. The black soil was mixed with the cow dung. Improved cook stove was fabricated with the aid of mould. The mould was fabricated by welding and forging the iron plate and then finally the finished touch to the chulha was given by the cow dung. The chimney was installed in the rim of the iron plate. To evaluate the performance of the traditional stove and improved cook stove, and to compare them, test on burning rate of the fuel, water boiling test, power output rate was conducted. The thermal performance of the improved two pot stove was compared with that of traditional mud stove. The results obtained showed a better performance of the improved two pot cook stove than that of the traditional mud stove. The burning rate of the traditional mud stove had a higher burning rate then the improved two pot cook stove. Also the traditional mud stove has less power output rate then the improved two pot stove. These results shows that biomass as fuel using rural population need a more efficient stove for cooking to replace the traditional stoves.
Key words: Traditional cook stove, Biomass, Two pot cook stove, Chulha, Thermal efficiency.
